Not always, that's the thing, especially with electronic controlled diesels like in your X.

In the diesels I've owned, the plugs are usually on only before starting, they have nothing to do with engine operating. So they dont cause any running issues, only hard start issues.

Usually, it's the very first start of the day that's the problem, especially in cold weather. For the rest of the day it starts normally. The next morning, hard start again and then normal for the rest of the day...repeat.
